Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
(I Am Not A Teacher. The joke's on me. < wipes tears > Perhaps I should have changed the TITLE to "A few enumerated lessons" before posting.)

All three questions are quoted from your comment.

Over all, I find your criticism (NOT-a-BAD-word emoji) constructive! Your points--taken together--remind us all: Prefatory marks about the subject(s) of "a lesson" might assist in attuning curious readers to common place contradictions between (i) theory, (ii) construction (iii) application, and (iv) practice of law. Also, in the manner of the great stoic, Frank, writing definitions in US-Eng. for multi-generational, "transnational," multi-lingual readers is hard werk! Universal humanity is a LIE. (Be-cautious emoji)

ii. construction. A title is the least informative element of a law. Once a bill (ID: chamber, number, title, intro date, body) is enacted according to the rules of the legislature and constitution (typically executive signature or administrative US code) the clerk of the legislature assigns a reference ID to the (former) bill's text, public law (PL) relating it by legislators' citations to category and class and "chapter" of existing public law to be amended, ie. "controlling law".

Pls, note time stamp: I posted the entry having READ the most recent text of its body before the bill was enacted. If the text of bills changes after HRM LOL assent, UK citizens should vigilant!.

European Union (Withdrawal) (No. 6) Bill (HC Bill 433)(HC Bill 433) amends European (Withdrawal) Act of 2018 ... "in effect", if not published ahhh sequence.

(i) theory,(iii) application, (iv) practice. presumption of innocence. Sure has taken a beating by the presses in the last decade. Is this principle of innocence for everyone at trial in fact harmful?

(iii) application, (iv) practice. trial objections "Hearsay" is one legal term of art. "Public officer" and "public's trust" are legal terms of art. ("Term of art" is a legal term of art!) References to UK laws and doctrine regarding these matters as well as public misconduct appear here, below subheading "Syllabus" of this diary entry.

in re: "No physical person is mentioned in the Act."
Which act? The points about Sumption's objectionable commentary, as quoted: His remarks apply common law doctrine --without citation, "under color of law"-- adjudicating "Public misconduct, Wilful misconduct" of Johnson's statements in parliament. Sumption's "suggestions" are professionally reprehensible, erroneous, suspect as a matter of civil and criminal law, and just plain IRONIC!

Did you know, within the first 10pp of the Law Commission report one learns how profoundly controversial the topic is among legislators, barristers, and plain folk? Moreover, no statute on "Public misconduct, Wilful misconduct" exists.

(Where's muh thought PO-lice patrol?!)
--Vive les Jail-house Lawyers!
In general, the lesson for "laymen" masquerading as "self-organizing" champions of freedom and cynical civilians combing journalistic reports is this: comprehension of legal codes and law enforcement is of vital interest to all living creatures, because the ones who exercise that political knowledge and experience can kill you or others with it.

Laws constitute government of all human societies. It is yours to obey or modify, ahem, by any means available.

The lesson plan is not to obtain expertise. It is firstly to exercise curiosity. It is to appreciate the principle of the thing, that is ideally, applicable to all in an epic search for equity.

Which equity do you accept and obet?

Diversity is the key to economic and political evolution.
